Paine was converted to the ardent patriot of the American Revolution from his natural birth status as an Englishman, and when the conversion happened, it was verbally total. He probably would have been difficult to like as an individual, and certainly a nuisance, if not a criminal to many, but no one could ever say two things of him: he was dull and disliked using flowery sentence construction.
